Ferran Adria to Close El Bulli Temporarily


Molecular gastronomy maven Ferran Adria has announced that he will close his famed Catalonian restaurant El Bulli for all of 2012 and 2013. But this isn’t a permanent closure, he assures: “I need time to decide how 2014 is going to be. We want the year 2014 to stand out and I know that when I return it will not be the same.”

Meanwhile, Chef Adam Melonas, who worked closely under Adria at El Bulli, has announced plans to open a 60-seat restaurant in New York. The Brisbane Times reports that venture is expected to be a “sensory space, incorporating music, art and architecture, and a 23-course menu. There will also be a laboratory that transforms into a private dining room for 16 at night.”
